Are You Leaving a Legacy?
I believe one of the greatest needs in the Church today is a tangible and practical ministry of stewardship and estate planning. Fifty percent of Americans, and that includes Christians, do not have a current will. That is a staggering statistic; and the ramifications of an individual not having a will are immeasurable on their children, surviving spouses, taxes and fees. Of course, there are many reasons why so many people neglect to prepare a will or do appropriate estate planning. For example, fear of dying, procrastination, confusion about the estate planning process, the cost of creating a will…and many more. That is why here at First Baptist Church Tuscaloosa we want to serve you by providing some “layman friendly” estate planning information that can help answer your questions and put your mind at ease about the estate planning process.
So, get comfortable and take a few minutes to browse through this informative site. If you prefer to just go ahead and get down to business, you can click on the Estate Plan Organizer (EPO) on any page and walk yourself through a tutorial/data gathering process. At the end, you can print it at home or ask for help. All of the information you log in is completely confidential. The EPO does not ask for social security numbers or bank account numbers. No one will see your entries unless you click submit at the end and ask for help. In that case, one of our friends at the Baptist Foundation of Alabama or our partners at PhilanthroCorp (a Christ-centered estate planning firm) will be in touch with you to serve you in any way they can. So click learn more below, and begin learning how you can protect your family and be a wise steward of all the resources that God has entrusted to you.
